    Hello Guys,

    Does anybody know what size are the FJ Cruiser Steelies? I've heard they are 17 x 7.5 and then other places I've seen they are 17 x 7.0.

    Either way i would like to know how big of a tire can I fit on the I was hoping I could get 285/70/R17 Duratracs on them.

    I currently have Duratracs 275/80/R18

    Thanks for the help!

    Try and search through here, they may be in there.

    This site seems to be sure they are 17'' x 7.5'' with 4.5'' backspacing.

    275/80/18 is a 35" tire, damn big for a 3" lift.

    A 285/65/18 seems a lot more common, as it is a 33" tire.

    It shouldn't rub to bad, might have to do minor trimming.
